The Story

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is inspired by the best whiskey-maker the world never knew, the first African-American master distiller on record in the United States, Nathan 'Nearest" Green. A slave until Emancipation and the end of the Civil War, Green was likely the one who taught Jack Daniel how to distill.

Owned entirely by Uncle Nearest, Inc., The Uncle Nearest line includes a Premium Aged blend of 8-10YO, and 11YO Barrel Proof Single Barrel, and debuting at Tales of the Cocktail: a Small Batch whiskey hand-selected by the founders of Uncle Nearest with a blend curated by descendants of Nearest Green. Every expression is distilled, aged, bottled, and hand-labeled in Tennessee.

Joining Uncle Nearest 1856, this whiskey is sourced from an undisclosed Tennesee distillery while founder and CEO Fawn Weaver builds a distillery complex in Shelbyville, Tennessee. Each batch is curated by one of the descendants of the remarkable Nathan "Nearest" Green. Each person’s name and signature is displayed on the back label of each bottle. The first batch was created by Victoria Eady-Butler, Green’s great-great-granddaughter. The number 1884 is a tribute to the final year Green made whiskey before retiring from distilling.

Uncle Nearest 1884 has a very special and unique personal touch of Green's family, who were involved in the blending process. This whiskey is a treat for whiskey aficionados and history lovers.
